The very first wine produced by the estate and appropriately named after owner and the heart of Querceto, Laura Di Battista.
Gazing down into the glass colours sparkle as ruby as the slippers of Dorothy Gale. There are subtle aromas of poppies on the nose, and alongside those red flowers are intense primary red fruit and fresh herbal notes of cherry, raspberry and bayleaf and those aromas translate on to the palate.
There is beautiful clarity and concentration of flavor, and density of fruit that makes the wine incredibly enticing and drinkable.
There is also a sense of energy in reserve about this vintage. Under layers of ripe fruit lies a powerful tannic frame, and a resounding acidity that ripples appealingly across the palate. A wine for those looking to engage their head and their heart.
At Querceto, we wholeheartedly believe great wine is made in the vineyard.
It's the reason we focus on those grape varieties that best express our terroir, like Sangiovese.
It’s also why we apply organic techniques for managing our 28 acres of vines, and focus on producing wines of high quality without chemical treatment and as little disruption as possible to the natural surroundings.
